Why Watch? Unfortunately, the visionary filmmaker Chris Marker died today, leaving behind a legacy most notably marked by his playful and often haunting explorations of persistence through time, personality and human identity. Most famous for La Jetéewhich was the inspiration for 12 Monkeys years later, it’s clear that his films had a profound impact on the world.

This short film from Nacho Vigalondo is most likely part of that Marker tradition. In it, a man recounts a woman’s strange alterations in relation to where she is – a problem that grows more and more out of control, leading to a powerful reflective lesson. It’s a beautiful movie that makes great use of simple techniques that create a powerful (and lonely) effect.

Hat tip to @bonnequin for sending it out into the world and for her keen observation.

What will it cost you? Only 4 joyous minutes of your life.
